- Average return of buy-sell recommendations
- Success rate of buy-sell recommendations
TipRanks' stock screener allows you to screen for "best analyst consensus" stocks in the technology sector, revealing stocks with a "Strong Buy" best analyst consensus rating. We combined the screener's insights with a database scan to find the most popular tech stocks by top analysts right now.
